About The Course:

Bougie intubation is performed as part of an emergency procedure towards establishing airway patency in patients with compromised airways. The procedure involves inserting a Bougie in to the glottis to facilitate insertion of an endotracheal tube.

Using this VR simulation for Bougie Intubation, healthcare practitioners can practice the Bougie intubation procedure in a realistic environment with a virtual patient. With both training and assessment modes, learners can perform the procedure and assess themselves on their performance.

Learning Objectives:
  • Use standard technique to insert Bougie through vocal cords
  • Use clinically approved methods to feed ET tube on Bougie
  • Confirm placement of tube in trachea to remove Bougie and laryngoscope
  • Connect and confirm placement of bag-valve mask

Core Skills Training

Performing Bougie Intubation

As a part of this Bougie Intubation procedure, the learner will begin with the laryngoscope in place and by placing an angled tip of the Bougie through the vocal cords. The learner will advance the Bougie down the trachea until met with resistance; the bounce of the tracheal rings. Holding the laryngoscope in place, an assistant will load the endotracheal tube onto the end of the Bougie. Once the endotracheal tube has advanced into the oropharynx and past into the trachea, the Bougie and laryngoscope will be removed and the balloon of the endotracheal tube inflated. The learner will attach a bag-valve-mask and confirm placement using auscultation and end-tidal CO2.
All necessary affordances are provided to complete the procedure with efficiency.


With prompts, guidance and affordances learners are hand-held through the process to practice the procedure in a virtual environment with a virtual patient.  

  • Photorealistic virtual environment  
  • Physics-based interactions  
  • Detailed instructions  
  • Adequate affordances to assist in task completion  


Test acquired skills to perform the procedures from start to finish without prompts. An incorrect step will take the learner back to the start to start afresh.  

  • Live scoring  
  • Instant feedback  
  • Adequate affordances for efficient performance  
  • Time tracking to monitor activity completion
